/dataDir/SndData/Seqs/pikiseq.arc is a paired ARC+DIR file with a catch: it has no DIR partner! Instead, a file called pikiseq.hed can be found embedded in the DOL header that serves the same purpose.

Strangely, changing the names of the JAM files in pikiseq.hed does not affect the file's ability to be loaded. It can be assumed, then, that files are loaded by their position in pikiseq.hed, not filename.

Swapping the offsets and sizes of JAM files in pikiseq.hed can allow for successful melody-swaps. Instrumentation is controlled by a third party.

The value 0x00000016 in the header of pikiseq.hed dictates how many JAM files are defined within it. Strangely, there can be no less than 2 defined JAM files.
